    If you can try to keep it for 10-12 people then you will have a better time countering lag.

    Jon will probably host, he has quite good net. Or I can too, my upload is 10M.

    :tup:

    Although, the host doesn't manage all the traffic any more apparently, it's more like p2p style traffic now.

    THE STORY

    The Track
    The port of Monaco is first mentioned in historical records as early as 43 BC, when Julius Caesar concentrated his fleet there while waiting in vain for Pompey. In the 12th century, the area fell under the sovereignty of Genoa, which was granted the entire coastline from Porto Venere to Monaco. After much conflict, the Grimaldis regained the rock in 1295, but suffered a significant amount of opposition in the ensuing years. In 1506 the Monegasques, under Lucien, Lord of Monaco, were under siege for some four months by the Genoan army, which had ten times the number of men. Monaco officially received full autonomy in 1524, but experienced difficulty retaining power, and on occasions briefly fell under the domination of Spain, Sardinia, and France.

    BMW 2002 Turbo
    The BMW New Class was a line of compact sedans and coupes produced by German automaker BMW starting with the 1962 1500 and continuing through the last 2002s in 1977. Powered by BMW's celebrated four-cylinder M10 engine, the New Class models featured a fully independent suspension, MacPherson struts in front, and front disc brakes. Initially a family of four-door sedans and two-door coupes, the New Class line was broadened to two-door sports sedans with the addition of the 02 Series 1600 and 2002 in 1966.

    Sharing little in common with the rest of the line beyond the power train, the sporty siblings caught auto enthusiasts' attention and established BMW as an international brand. Precursors to the famed BMW 3 Series, the two-doors' success cemented the firm's future as an upper tier performance car maker.

    Golf I GTI
    Like its predecessor the Volkswagen Beetle, the Volkswagen Golf Mk1 has proven to be influential. In continuous production since 1974, the Golf was one of the first widely successful front-wheel drive hatchbacks. In the USA, the Morris Mini, Honda N360 and Fiat 128 saw only limited success, but it was the Rabbit, along with the Honda Civic that sparked another generation of European-derived front-wheel drive American compacts, such as the Dodge Omni, Escort and Cavalier in the 1980s, just as the Beetle inspired Falcon and Corvair in 1960s and subcompact Vega and Pinto in the 1970s.

    Lancia Stratos
    The Lancia Stratos HF, widely and more simply known as Lancia Stratos, is a car made by Italian car manufacturer Lancia. The HF stands for High Fidelity. It was a very successful rally car, winning the World Rally Championship in 1974, 1975, and 1976 and is btw the absolute dream garage car of the fearless leader of T&L. The Stratos was a very successful rally car during the 1970s and early 1980s. It started a new era in rallying as it was the first car designed from scratch for this kind of competition. The body was wedge-shaped, and unusually short and wide, providing maximum traction. Lancia did extensive testing with the Stratos and raced the car in several racing events where Group 5 prototypes were allowed during the 1972 and 1973 seasons. Production of the 500 cars required for homologation in Group 4 commenced in 1973 and the Stratos was homologated for the 1974 World Rally Championship.

    RESULTS
    1st - 8 T&Ls
    2nd - 7 T&Ls
    3rd - 6 T&Ls
    4th - 5 T&Ls
    5th - 4 T&Ls
    6th - 3 T&Ls
    7th - 2 T&Ls
    8th - 2 T&Ls
    9th - 2 T&Ls
    10th - 1 T&Ls
    11th - 1 T&Ls
    12th - 1 T&Ls
    13th - 1 T&Ls
    14th - 1 T&Ls
    15th - 1 T&Ls
    16th - 1 T&Ls

    According to Top Gear's highly spurious and questionable scientific knowledge, playing car racing games for hours makes you an 88 per cent better human being. And a better driver.

    Nope mate - you can tune the engine up to 200 bhp thats it.
    Ofc its hard to tell if anyone dosent apply to the rules but its a T&L event and I expect all of us to stay within the race limits. Im coming online later - maybe a test. Maybe the 2002 would be cool as we both fancy BMWs?

    Hi John

    Trans and shocks can not be upgraded. The car should be stock, but after some testing yesterday Ive upgraded the race regulations. You'll find what you need in the race post and it includes the following:

    BMW 2002
    Upgrade bhp limit from 200 to 210 bhp
    Upgrade weight reduction from nothing to weight reduction stadium 2 + windows. Car weight should be 962 kg.

    Lancia Stratos
    Downgrade bhp limit from 200 to 189 ( only oil cahge alowed)

    VW Golf GTI
    Upgrade bhp limit from 200 to max bhp (including last stage turbo)

    After testing all cars with these upgrades/ downgrades they are pretty simular except the difference you should expect in FR, FF and MR cars.
